This course introduces anatomic approaches to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as well as surgical and interventional injection indications, principles, techniques, and skills. Panel discussion, lectures and case presentations provide the background for extensive hands-on cadaver sessions where participants have the opportunity to practice these techniques alongside expert faculty. Learn both surgical and interventional approaches in the treatment of spinal disorders. Attendees are provided the fundamental knowledge and skills to benefit the most from spinal fellowship training.
Upon completion of the course, participants should gain strategies to:
- Identify the indications for interventional and surgical procedures, as well as outcome parameters including potential complications;
- Demonstrate fundamental knowledge of spine anatomical structures and their relationship to each other;
- Describe the key anatomic landmarks in the spine necessary to perform safe interventional and surgical procedures;
- Incorporate knowledge learned and skills acquired in fellowship training and future practice.
